Rogers Cable film shoot, Modern Classics at the Bay on Queen, North York Elder Abuse and my son’s first day back at school….
Today was one of those days you wished you had a double of yourself to help out:
My day started off with a film shoot at Rogers Cable in Newmarket followed by an event downtown at “The Bay on Queen”, where Mosaic assists with a monthly fashion show and other events. After that I was off on the subway to York Mills and Yonge for a meeting at the new “Circle of Care” offices for a North York Elder Abuse Network meeting. Thank you Circle of Care!!!
The Rogers Cable shoot for the “Bulletin Board” community channel will air sometime in September and will highlight some of the important community events that will be held at the Mosaic Community Resource Centre and the Shops on Steels where we have our main office:
Some of the events to be held in September include a) First Link Memory Cafe for people newly diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, their family and caregivers, b) the “French Fall Fair” at Shops on Steels and 404 and c) “Take a Coffee Break with Mosaic” which is raising money for The Alzheimer’s Society.
As far as the second event of the day, The Bay had a wonderful selection of guest speakers including Luba Lesychyn of “Purdys Chocolatier” (yummy chocolate http://www.chocolativore.com/). Luby is the author of “Theft By Chocolate” and she did a reading from her book. There was also a speaker from The Royal Ontario Museum and finally, a wonderful parade of ladies fashions narrated by Penny.
I must admit, it was lovely meeting with many of the ladies from the community many of whom also visit the Mosaic Community Resource Centre. I managed to grab a couple of minutes rest with a lovely cup of coffee while the reps from Purdys Chocolatier provided me with samples of chocolate yumminess that melted in my mouth!
And finally, the first item on my agenda, getting my son to school for his first day of school since March: he has been struggling with the effects of Mono since January 2012! Today was the first day of school for all students living in the GTA area, holidays and vacations are over. I was feeling nervous for him.
